##### Notes/Equations
1. ClockLFSR can be used to generate PN sequences with user-defined recurrence relations. The input is a clock signal; with each positive clock edge, the next output bit is calculated. A clock edge occurs any time the baseband input signal rises through 0.5V.
2. This model works in transient and circuit envelope simulation.
3. With each positive clock edge, data is shifted to the right in the shift register. The length of the shift register is determined by the most significant one-bit in the Taps value.

###### LFSR Model

The numbers a(1), a(2), ... , a(r) are the binary feedback coefficients and are specified by the Taps parameter. This value may be specified as a decimal number, or as a binary pattern if the bin( ) function is used. The initial contents of the shift are specified by the value of the Seed parameter. The following equations describe the operation of this component:
At each positive clock edge n (n ≥ 1),
for n ≥ 1:

where
D(0) = Seed2 (0)
D(−1) = Seed2 (1)
.
.
.
D(1−r) = Seed2 (r−1)
and Seed =

where Seed2(k) Œ{0,1} for 0 ≤ k < r.
Example: Let Seed = 2, and Taps = 7
then
Seed2 (0) = 0
Seed2 (1) = 1
.
.
.
Seed2 (6) = 0
thus,
(0) = Seed2 (0) = 0
D(-1) = Seed2 (1) = 1
D(-2) = Seed2 (2) = 0
.
.
.
D(-6) = Seed22 (6) = 0
Seed2 (2) = 0
Linear Feedback Shift Register ClockLFSR
The binary feedback coefficients are specified by Taps. For example, the recurrence relation
D(n) = (D(n-7) + D(n-3) + D(n-2) + D(n-1))mod 2
is specified by:
Taps = bin("1000111")
or
Taps = 71
The following table provides a list of feedback coefficients for linear feedback shift registers showing one or more alternate feedback connections for a given number of stages.
